The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Monday SQ

    Squat
    bar x few x few
    135 x 10 x 2
    225 x 5
    315 x 5
    405 x 1
    add belt
    495 x 1
    add wraps
    530 x 1
    550 x 1

    Leg Extention
    4 sets of 20

    45 Degree back raise
    4 sets of 15

    decline sit up
    4 sets of 10

    Most weight I've ever handled on squats. 530 was a joke considering it was a 10lb PR and I rushed my setup on the 550 and got a tad forward but quickly rectified it. Im almost certain I had the bar just a touch higher than normal.

    If I have a good day next week and the stars are aligned and I get my setup spot on in the midst of anxiety and controlled rage I think I will hit 6 pies a side. Easy to sit here and type it though.. we'll see, quietly confident.

    coming in strong for the 27th.

    Saturday pressing

    did some pressing. Better than nothing but not better than event training.

    Push Press (1st real time focusing on push)
    135 x 5
    135 x 3
    155 x 3
    170 x 3
    190 x 8 (log comp weight)
    205 x 3
    225 x 3 (2 rep PR)

    DB shoulder press

    3 sets of 20

    CG bench cluster set, feet up with 135

    3 sets of 15

    Pushdowns/curls superset
    few sets- few reps

    most I ever pressed overhead was 225 a loooooong time ago, today I hit 3 pretty good. Third was a grinder but I messed up the rep before so technically I did 3.5 reps. Good signs, think the close gripping and backing off overheads for a short while payed off. Last week of training now before the deload into the comp!

    thanks gaz!

    Tonight's penultimate squats

    Squat
    135 x 5
    225 x 5
    315 x 5
    405 x 3
    add belt
    495 x 1
    add wraps
    530 x 3
    575 x 1



    Leg ext
    3 sets of 25

    leg curls

    Haven't hit a max effort lift in a long time and my god was it satisfying just to load a bar up and go for it. Makes me miss the conjugate style of training but i've never had results or a run of training like this so you cant fix what isnt broke right... been saying id take 6 pies for a ride for a while now. There you go fella's! One happy man

    thanks Brian, it looked easier on vid than it felt. I hit a wall about half way up and thought here we go. Felt good to get a max effort lift in though.

    Bodyweight is at 255, I've been heavier but really struggling to put the extra 5 on or break past the old plateau. Maybe im not destined to be a big man afterall, or maybe I should stop crying about it and pick up the fork!

    Saturday - Last session before deload

    Log press
    - worked up in 5's to a very easy 205x5

    Yoke/Barrel carry
    - 315 yoke - 175lb barrel - 20m each way x 2

    Speed deadlifts
    - 265 x 2 x 6

    very easy and light session. deloading all week now into the comp. Can't believe how fast it has come round and in a few days time I can legitimately call myself a novice strongman haha. I'll mean it in every sense of the word, got a feeling I will learn a lot very quickly this weekend.

    Events are
    Truck Pull
    Conan's Wheel
    Log Press (3 different logs all @ 175, max reps on each in 75 seconds)
    Deadlift (500 max reps in 75 seconds)
    Yoke/Barrel carry - 600 yoke/ 265 barrel? - 20m each (fastest time obv wins)

    Last 3 is where my comfort zone lies as I've been able to train them. First two will just be a case of getting through I think.
